Westbrook ties Bird for 5th all-time in triple-doubles

USA Today Sports

Make that five triple-doubles in the last six games for Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, who continued his historic statistical tear through the Association Monday night on the road against the Utah Jazz in a narrow 97-95 win.

In 36 minutes, the five-time All-Star scored a game-high 38 points on 11-of-29 shooting, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished out 10 dimes for his league-leading 22nd triple-double. Only two other players have more than four (James Harden, LeBron James).
